bummer trip during a show? how about 9/20/91 Boston Garden... some head i knew for about 3 weeks was cool enough to get me a ride to boston and let me crash at his parents house. we (unknowingly) bought a couple counterfeit tix on the street for this show. we got in separate lines to go in and he got in fine.

i showed the usher, oh... 65, 70 years old he was, small guy, my ticket, and he says "hold on a second, this looks counterfeit," and walks away... goes and shows it to another ticket taker about 15 feet away in the middle of a crowd.... do i make a break for it and run into the crowd? NO!!!! i stand there and wait for him to come back and tell me to beat it!!!

i had taken some acid about an hour before and it was coming on a bit. paranoia! depression! get me outta here!!!! i hop in a cab and.... go to a MOVIE THEATRE to kill the time waiting for my friend so i can get a ride back to his parents.... WOW... what a depressing twisted night in a movie theatre -- watching a movie i didnt want to watch, with about 4 or 5 other people there... and i was primed for a dead show -- luckily the acid was pretty bunk -- it was all just a paranoia trip.

of course we meet up later and i am greeted with the amazing tale of the more drugs he took and the fun he had, and the HELP>SLIP>.... FIRE! they played.... "DUDE... YOU TOTALLY MISSED IT!! they did HELP>SLIP>FIRE DUDE!"

yeah, that's nice.

don't worry man -- you weren't nearly an idiot! i did it much better, i should know....
